What's a Family Class?
Shakespeare Family Workshop is what we call a "Family Class." Your children are enrolled in the class and will be the ones doing the activities. The adult at home interacts with the instructor directly in the classroom, posting student writing and asking questions on how best to facilitate writing. We'll guide you on how to partner with your particular writers and grow your skills as a writing coach!
Independent teens (13-14 years old) who are ready to read the material and engage in writing activities on their own are welcome to post separately in class.
Enroll the entire family in this class for one affordable price and discover a fresh lens on this classic material.
